A Handful of Sand is an extraordinary editorial achievement by two of our finest poets, Ali Cobby Eckermann and Lionel Fogarty. This issue of Southerly brings to its reader a rich and striking cross-section of the poetry, fiction, essays and memoir of Australia’s first nations, from prodigious teenagers to respected Elders, from over twenty language groups, and from every corner of Australia. A perfect introduction for those who have not encountered such writing before, an invaluable resource for those who work with and within it, a rewarding experience for anyone who cares about country and wants to know more of its secrets, or who just wants to broaden their understanding of what writing is and can be, A Handful of Sand changes and animates the field of Australian Literature, remapping the real and imaginary landscapes on which the national fiction was founded.
